A virtual Rosetta Stone Dec 31, 2007
I am a "layperson" with a deep interest in Erickson's work and I have a collection including most of his writings. However, there is so much of it that I admit I have gotten lost in the volumes, without ever a hope of sorting out the nuggets of technique and the foundations of Dr. Erickson's philosophy. This book does an amazing job of sorting it all out, and I am greatly indebted to Dr. Havens for doing so. Yes, the text is mostly quotes from Erickson's writings. The brilliance is in how they are categorized, and in Dr. Havens' accompanying interpretations. This book has instantly become one of the most valued in my collection.
Very nice but don't waste your money..... Jan 22, 2005
OK, this is a beautiful book, I admit. Yet it is totaly uninformative it only has quotes and doesn't teach you really something. It's too general.
Suppose you take thirty pictures of diffrent churches and shred them all into little pieces and look at the pieces you will learn nothing of architecture nor history.
